Authorities at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) says Mr Emmanuel Awuah, the man who is in the news for murdering an Uber driver in the Ashanti region is not a student of the university.
The 23-year-old was reported to be a final year Geological Engineering student of the University.
But authorities at KNUST in a statement explained that according to its records, Mr Awuah did not register for the 1st and 2nd semesters of the year 2018/2019 academic year. He again did not register for the 1st and 2nd semester of 2019/2020 academic year. He did not defer his programme, neither did he indicate any reasons for abandoning his programme of study in the University.
“Per the university’s regulations, a student who abandons his course for one full academic year without any cause ceases to be a student of the university. In this case, the said student abandoned his course for two academic years and can therefore not be referred to as a KNUST final year student,” the statement said.
KNUST says it condemns Mr Awuah’s actions and called on the law enforcement agency to bring him to justice to serve as a deterrent to others.
